dinghy race gone wild with zatara, drenched and the wynns

The Greatest Race On Keels!

What happens when three camera-toting, YouTube publishing, shameless sailors all drop the hook in the same bay?  THE GREATEST RACE ON KEELS!

That’s right, it’s the very first Pineapple Cup Competition.  Set in the beautiful Koko Bay in Vava’u Tonga.  It’s a clash of titans…a rumble of regular ‘ol Joes battling it out for bragging rights.

You’ve never seen any of us like this before.  Raw and uncensored, it’s dinghies gone wild.

When we saw Zatara and Drenched both sitting in the bay it hit us instantly…let’s do something crazy! Because they’re crazy, we’re crazy, why not be crazy together.

That’s when we came up with the idea of a dinghy race. It all came together in less than 48 hours and man was it a blast to film. And yes, Zatara really did win the race. It was a bad track design on our part.  We should have made more turns and less straightaways! 😆 Next time!

Speaking of next time, what should we do next?  National Lampoons Tonga Vacation?


A big thanks to both Drenched and Zatara for taking the time to make this ridiculous video with us.

Special thanks to…

S/V WIZ for being our judges and helping out with our action cameras.

Selfia crew for being behind-the-scenes drone ninjas.

Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!

    I thought for sure if would be a Wynn for you especially being fuel by Bourbon. Too much fun you crazy Texans. You might need a “go fund me” video for a larger engine, and a little more jet fuel (👍).
